Charter of uk.rec.youth-hostel

(Not Moderated)

The newsgroup is for discussion of all matters to do with youth hostels, as they affect persons in the UK, and for discussions on UK youth hostels as they affect anybody.

The term youth hostels here refers both to hostels run by members of the International Youth Hostels Federation (IYHF), and to similar establishments which are independent, or which belong to other organisations.


Staff of individual hostels or of hostelling organisations may post items of information or comment, but the newsgroup is not for advertisements by hostels, whether or not they are in the IYHF.

However it is legitimate to announce the opening of new youth hostels or facilities.
